When the seasons change, I get in a mood to refresh things – my wardrobe, my apartment, everything! I just get so antsy to make a change, especially in spring and summer. When the weather gets warmer I tend to also switch up my cologne. I wear a fragrance every day, and usually stick to Helmut Lang’s Cuiron, or Le Labo’s Vetiver. But I decided this season I want something a little lighter to match my summery mood.
On my journey to discover my new summer scent, I came across a brand that let’s you customize a fragrance to fit your taste. I’m all for personalization, so this really intrigued me. Scent Trunk is built on personalization – in just a few steps, you have an individual fragrance based on your own tastes!
It all starts with a scent kit, sent by mail, that has 6 different smells: Citrus, Woods, Aromatic, Floral, Amber, and Chypre. Once you rate them, you send your kit back, and in just a few short days your custom-created fragrance comes straight to your door! I loved how quick the turnaround was, and I was really happy with the outcome.
My personal fragrance, “Citrus Amber 1” is a light, airy scent perfect for long summer days. It has top notes of bright citrus and fruit like orange and lemon, with a base of musky warm amber and wood. I love how the two balance each other and make each other more complex – it’s not a combination I’ve smelled before! It makes me think of sun-drenched days spent on a sandy beach. The best part is that once your scent is created, you can have it sent to you every month for a refresh. It’s so easy I don’t even have to think about it, and I love that I don’t have to worry about running out. All in all Scent Trunk made the experience so easy, and I’m happy I’ve discovered what is sure to be my summer scent. Now all I need is the beach vacation…
